Uninstalling this bullshit permanently. I suggest ALL of you do the same.

TL;DR: Avast has a bitcoin miner. It's literally more of a virus than an antivirus at this point.
I've literally been using Avast Free AV for a good 4 years now.
It gets the job done, low resources in the background, has the typical company telemetry scum though, but it's oh-so "disable-able".
I've ran with it for a long time, kept auto-updates on, and you know, at times gave it a pat on its back and allowed a bit of anonymous data collection when I really didn't care much about CPU power and wasn't on a WiFi data plan. Seems like a bit of a fair trade for a free software that I needed only to protect my system every once in a while.
Lately, I've reinstalled Windows, and upon setting up Avast again, I told it to stop everything with data-collection, even anonymous stuff, (even blocking the ips and sites of its scummy hidden adsense links that's deep in windows' network files) because lately my 8-year old CPU's been tanking and it can't handle much without chugging a bit. Within about less than 30 minutes of installing it on a fresh system, and even after a reboot (as I was still setting up my PC again), I noticed it was using a SHITLOAD of a lot of CPU. I'm talking like ~40% of a 6-Core 3.6ghz . Once again, I checked the settings and no telemetry options were enabled. I turned off Auto-Updates for the software itself as well as virus definitions, as I'd rather do them manually if it was causing this much usage. Nothing for pre-setup, no scheduled-scans, nothing at all extra, was running from the program. I figured maybe it was doing a system scan, as I wanted to trust Avast, and just let it do what it needed to.

Cut to today- I noticed an insane upload-speed problem with my internet. Soon, Windows disconnects my WiFi-adapter. I figured it was something with my USB 3.0 driver messing up again, as I need to run a USB 3.1 dongle for wireless as there's no room in my MB with my chonkyass GPU in the way. So I look at Task Manager, restart the service, and reconnect the WiFi dongle by just unplugging it and plugging it back into the USB port. And that's when I noticed ol' buddy Avast using up a ton of CPU again.
I thought, "Huh, maybe it's doing an auto-scan...?" I never specified it to do so, but it could've been something I missed in the setup, even though it would've been my 3rd time in-depthly reviewing it.
Open up Avast's UI, and nothing. No scans running, no scans in recent scan-history...
I try to ignore it, and look back at Task Manager and try to fix my WiFi adapter.

And OOOOH HERE WE GO.


The MOMENT I unplug my WiFi dongle, my total CPU usage goes from 89% DOWN TO 35%.
Avast's shotgun-ride of ~55% constant usage INSTANTLY stops.

"WOW, IT MUST BE DOING A BROWSER SCAN."
I CLOSE OUT MY BROWSER AND PLUG IN MY ADAPTER AGAIN, AND GUESS WHAT SHIT HAPPENS.

INSTANT.
40%.
CPU USAGE.

It was like I was jumpstarting a fucking car.
I try ONCE AGAIN, thinking, "I have all the telemetry disabled, no way would such a faithful company be mining an extremely petty amount of bitcoin in the background!"

I RESTART my computer, and give it it's little boot-time.
WITHIN A FEW FUCKING SECONDS of booting up, Avast SKYROCKETS to 50% CPU USAGE.

That's when I FUCKING lost it.
I found it crystal fucking clear that it wasn't doing any sort of update, web-scan, or anything. All my speed was "upload", not "download" according to Task Manager's report of network traffic.
I mean, it should've been obvious, right? Why was I getting an issue with my WiFi adapter in the first place? I mean, it was SO MUCH BANDWIDTH THAT IT LITERALLY DISCONNECTED THE DAMN THING.
Oh and no, I think it's blatantly obvious that no fucking program in the world needs 1.8 Ghz of CPU to upload some "anonymous virus scan data" or anything, despite the fact I had that stuff under their definition of "disabled". Avast Staff and all of you overpaid goons, don't even fucking try to quiver your lips.

...Uninstalled Avast instantly, left a fucking nasty message in their uninstallation survey's "other" category, don't even regret it one bit, hell even if my PC's as open as a fresh circumcision I don't fucking regret it.

Now...Existing Avast Users.
Are you happy, knowing that your PC is being illegally mined and bottle-necked all just to make a measly amount of money, WHICH WOULD BE LESS THAN PENNIES TO A CORPORATION LIKE THIS, the moment they notice a light-amount of CPU usage from your computer?
Or perhaps, these cunts mine your PC on a schedule.
"Yeah, we'll bitmine DESKTOP-12345 for 30 minutes starting 3:30PM. Trust me, they won't notice that short amount of time." "Just $3? Who cares, buy me a fucking donut with it, their fault they chose to install our product."

I wouldn't give a single shit if had only Avast hogged my resources like this for just 5 minutes every fucking month.
Not a fuck given even if it was for just a dime of their profit.
Any company that promises full-user telemetry disability in their preferences, yet despite your preferences, illegally enforces a trojan worse than most malware anyways, all for some scummy fucking coffee money, can spend the rest of its days before bankruptcy in hell.
Avast, was never this way, never this horrible. It was the reason why I kept an antivirus on my PC. Now the program's more of a bitminer than the ones it detects.
Fuck you Avast, burn in hell you fucking greedy cunts.

Uninstall Avast RIGHT NOW. It's so shit now that it literally has a Bitcoin Miner.

TL;DR: Avast has a bitcoin miner, took up a constant 50% of my CPU ONLY while my WiFi was on, with all telemetry options disabled and blocked. It's literally more of a virus than an antivirus at this point.
I've already uploaded this in avast but I figured I should spread this as much as possible. I can't express how mad I am at this fucking horseshit.

Groestlcoin 6th Anniversary Release

Introduction

Dear Groestlers, it goes without saying that 2020 has been a difficult time for millions of people worldwide. The groestlcoin team would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone our best to everyone coping with the direct and indirect effects of COVID-19. Let it bring out the best in us all and show that collectively, we can conquer anything.
The centralised banks and our national governments are facing unprecedented times with interest rates worldwide dropping to record lows in places. Rest assured that this can only strengthen the fundamentals of all decentralised cryptocurrencies and the vision that was seeded with Satoshi's Bitcoin whitepaper over 10 years ago. Despite everything that has been thrown at us this year, the show must go on and the team will still progress and advance to continue the momentum that we have developed over the past 6 years.
In addition to this, we'd like to remind you all that this is Groestlcoin's 6th Birthday release! In terms of price there have been some crazy highs and lows over the years (with highs of around $2.60 and lows of $0.000077!), but in terms of value– Groestlcoin just keeps getting more valuable! In these uncertain times, one thing remains clear – Groestlcoin will keep going and keep innovating regardless. On with what has been worked on and completed over the past few months.

UPDATED - Groestlcoin Core 2.18.2

This is a major release of Groestlcoin Core with many protocol level improvements and code optimizations, featuring the technical equivalent of Bitcoin v0.18.2 but with Groestlcoin-specific patches. On a general level, most of what is new is a new 'Groestlcoin-wallet' tool which is now distributed alongside Groestlcoin Core's other executables.
NOTE: The 'Account' API has been removed from this version which was typically used in some tip bots. Please ensure you check the release notes from 2.17.2 for details on replacing this functionality.

How to Upgrade?

Windows
If you are running an older version, shut it down. Wait until it has completely shut down (which might take a few minutes for older versions), then run the installer.
OSX
If you are running an older version, shut it down. Wait until it has completely shut down (which might take a few minutes for older versions), run the dmg and drag Groestlcoin Core to Applications.

ALL NEW - Groestlcoin Moonshine iOS/Android Wallet

Built with React Native, Moonshine utilizes Electrum-GRS's JSON-RPC methods to interact with the Groestlcoin network.
GRS Moonshine's intended use is as a hot wallet. Meaning, your keys are only as safe as the device you install this wallet on. As with any hot wallet, please ensure that you keep only a small, responsible amount of Groestlcoin on it at any given time.

ALL NEW! – HODL GRS Android Wallet

HODL GRS connects directly to the Groestlcoin network using SPV mode and doesn't rely on servers that can be hacked or disabled.
HODL GRS utilizes AES hardware encryption, app sandboxing, and the latest security features to protect users from malware, browser security holes, and even physical theft. Private keys are stored only in the secure enclave of the user's phone, inaccessible to anyone other than the user.
Simplicity and ease-of-use is the core design principle of HODL GRS. A simple recovery phrase (which we call a Backup Recovery Key) is all that is needed to restore the user's wallet if they ever lose or replace their device. HODL GRS is deterministic, which means the user's balance and transaction history can be recovered just from the backup recovery key.

ALL NEW! – GroestlcoinSeed Savior

Groestlcoin Seed Savior is a tool for recovering BIP39 seed phrases.
This tool is meant to help users with recovering a slightly incorrect Groestlcoin mnemonic phrase (AKA backup or seed). You can enter an existing BIP39 mnemonic and get derived addresses in various formats.
To find out if one of the suggested addresses is the right one, you can click on the suggested address to check the address' transaction history on a block explorer.

ALL NEW! – Vanity Search Vanity Address Generator

NOTE: NVidia GPU or any CPU only. AMD graphics cards will not work with this address generator.
VanitySearch is a command-line Segwit-capable vanity Groestlcoin address generator. Add unique flair when you tell people to send Groestlcoin. Alternatively, VanitySearch can be used to generate random addresses offline.
If you're tired of the random, cryptic addresses generated by regular groestlcoin clients, then VanitySearch is the right choice for you to create a more personalized address.
VanitySearch is a groestlcoin address prefix finder. If you want to generate safe private keys, use the -s option to enter your passphrase which will be used for generating a base key as for BIP38 standard (VanitySearch.exe -s "My PassPhrase" FXPref). You can also use VanitySearch.exe -ps "My PassPhrase" which will add a crypto secure seed to your passphrase.
VanitySearch may not compute a good grid size for your GPU, so try different values using -g option in order to get the best performances. If you want to use GPUs and CPUs together, you may have best performances by keeping one CPU core for handling GPU(s)/CPU exchanges (use -t option to set the number of CPU threads).

ALL NEW! – Groestlcoin EasyVanity 2020

Groestlcoin EasyVanity 2020 is a windows app built from the ground-up and makes it easier than ever before to create your very own bespoke bech32 address(es) when whilst not connected to the internet.
If you're tired of the random, cryptic bech32 addresses generated by regular Groestlcoin clients, then Groestlcoin EasyVanity2020 is the right choice for you to create a more personalised bech32 address. This 2020 version uses the new VanitySearch to generate not only legacy addresses (F prefix) but also Bech32 addresses (grs1 prefix).

ALL NEW! – Electrum Personal Server

Groestlcoin Electrum Personal Server aims to make using Electrum Groestlcoin wallet more secure and more private. It makes it easy to connect your Electrum-GRS wallet to your own full node.
It is an implementation of the Electrum-grs server protocol which fulfils the specific need of using the Electrum-grs wallet backed by a full node, but without the heavyweight server backend, for a single user. It allows the user to benefit from all Groestlcoin Core's resource-saving features like pruning, blocks only and disabled txindex. All Electrum-GRS's feature-richness like hardware wallet integration, multi-signature wallets, offline signing, seed recovery phrases, coin control and so on can still be used, but connected only to the user's own full node.
Full node wallets are important in Groestlcoin because they are a big part of what makes the system be trust-less. No longer do people have to trust a financial institution like a bank or PayPal, they can run software on their own computers. If Groestlcoin is digital gold, then a full node wallet is your own personal goldsmith who checks for you that received payments are genuine.
Full node wallets are also important for privacy. Using Electrum-GRS under default configuration requires it to send (hashes of) all your Groestlcoin addresses to some server. That server can then easily spy on your transactions. Full node wallets like Groestlcoin Electrum Personal Server would download the entire blockchain and scan it for the user's own addresses, and therefore don't reveal to anyone else which Groestlcoin addresses they are interested in.
Groestlcoin Electrum Personal Server can also broadcast transactions through Tor which improves privacy by resisting traffic analysis for broadcasted transactions which can link the IP address of the user to the transaction. If enabled this would happen transparently whenever the user simply clicks "Send" on a transaction in Electrum-grs wallet.
Note: Currently Groestlcoin Electrum Personal Server can only accept one connection at a time.

Some Earning Experiments

Hello Fellow Redditors,
I am going to list some of my income sources. I will try to give as much information as I can.
Some details about me:I am u/abhiearns, I am currently studying. I want to create some sort of extra income sources. I have been trying to use beermoney as well as other passive income communities like passive_income, passiveincome to find some sites and sources that can work for me.
Enough with the details, Let start by listing some of my extra income sources.
Active Earning: So, I will start with sites on which you have to work actively and devote some serious hours to earn some extra income. These are some beermoney sites (include survey sites, and other such sites):
Passive Earning (No Initial Investments): These will list some of my passive earning sources, I am not listing my investments here because I think they deserve a separate section.Disclaimer: I have 2 laptops and an extra phone so I use all of them for earning, the payments may vary depending on the number and power of various computers.
Passive Earning (Investments Required): These are the sources which require some sort of initial investment. These sources can be risky and there are chances to lose money.

\** I am still trying other sites and apps. I will keep updating this post.*
These are some of the sources I use to earn, I highly recommend these. I won't say you will become a millionaire using these but still its little more than you had yesterday.

OS and most applications/games are suddenly unbearably slow

Hi all. Suddenly most of my 3D games are really slow (even WoW classic takes 6 minutes to boot up!), as well as software (BattleNet launcher, Steam). Slow as in takes minutes to boot up (compared to seconds normally) as well as hanging up with "not responding" and slow on loading content, and in games I get stutter once they slowly booted up. The entire OS feels sluggish, it's like PC barely manages to run it without bigger hick-ups, but chokes on games. Installation of software seems slow, downloads in chrome are slow to finish (when virus scan is run on them, I guess). Even restarting system is slow, despite it being on SSD.
Relatively new build, I'm on a Ryzen 2700 and GTX 1060/GTX 770. I first thought it's a bitcoin miner, but the GPU/CPU usage in task manager is completely normal. Tried benchmarking with CPU-Z thinking something wrong with CPU, it performed alright. Power settings are on performance what I can see. HDD/SSD read/write speed is normal.
It feels like the CPU is operating at like 10% capacity, which is barely enough for browsers and some simple games/applications, rest hanging up. What can this possibly be, and how do I go about troubleshooting this?
Already tried:

Edit: Solved, seems my overclock settings were at fault.

All programs/games are suddenly slow?

Hi all. I'm on Windows 10, and suddenly started noticing that most of my 3D games are really slow (even WoW classic takes 6 minutes to boot up!), as well as software (BattleNet launcher, Adobe Premiere). Slow as in takes minutes to boot up (compared to seconds normally) as well as hanging up with "not responding", and in games I get stutter once they slowly booted up. The entire OS feels sluggish tbh, but it's like PC barely manages to run it without bigger hick-ups, but chokes on games. Even restarting system is slow, despite it being on SSD.

Passive Income for the Poor: Putting Your Devices to Work

The general theory behind passive income is that it either requires a lot of start-up work, or you need to invest. The thing is though, is that most of us have already made the necessary investments and we just don't realize it. If you have invested in a computer, or an Android device, then you already have all you need to start getting yourself some passive income.
This is the collection of everything that you can have your devices doing for you in order to earn some passive income. If you do them all, you will be looking at around an extra $5-$10 a day depending on what devices you have access to.

MoneySMS: Install the app and wait for them to send you txt messages. Each time they send you a message, you get paid€0.02 and you can expect an average of two messages per day. If you set your phone's default message notification to silent and give everyone in your address book their own notification sound, then you won't be annoyed about the constant txt messages. Important: When signing up, be sure to input a referral code: Doing so will earn you an extra €0.25. Mine is E4DD57B65 and I'd be grateful if you used it.

McMoney: Same deal as MoneySMS. Install the app, receive txt messages periodically, and get paid. This one seems to pay different people different amounts, based on unknown variables. I get paid $0.065 per txt message and average about 1 per day.

Cash Magnet (Non-Ref): Install the app and a bunch of other apps it needs to run, turn it on and leave it be. It will view ads and install games and pay you half of the revenue it generates. It will give you about $0.50 a day per device (up to a limit of 4) so it is well worth using. The only real issue with this one is that it requires a lot of memory on your phone. You really need at least two gigabytes spare on your device to make the best use of it.

Electroneum: Install this app on your phone and tell it to start mining. It doesn't actually mine anything on the phone - it is all cloud mining. In return you get some cryptocurrency which can be traded for money. Each day will get you about $0.04 worth. Important: When signing up, be sure to input a referral code. Doing so will earn you an extra 1% more money for life. Mine is AD4EBC and I'd be grateful if you used it.

Panel App (Non-Ref): Install the app and just wait until it generates enough credit to get yourself a prepaid Mastercard. Or just don't - I don't really recommend this one as it pays really low (about $5 a year it seems) but it is free and effortless, so I figured someone might be interested.

HideoutTV (Non-Ref): This is entirely browser-based, so you can run it on anything, although you can't use both it and Cash Magnet at the same time and CM pays more, so if you only have an Android, then run CM instead. If you have a 5th Android to spare or a computer to use, then sign up to both this and Earnably (Non-Ref). You need them both, but when you have them you can use them to run videos which will pay ads on occasion and pay you half of the revenue, averaging to about $0.35 per day. This one isn't entirely passive as you will need to click every few hours to keep it running, but you are only looking at about 3 clicks per day.

Autosurfers: Click that link, sign up to each and every one of them, and run them all on a single computer. They just automatically surf specific webpages each minute and pay you for each page that loads Between the lot, you are looking at about $2 a day but make sure you read that link as it highlights some important setup aspects you will need to know about.

eBesucher (Non-Ref): This is the exact same deal as the Autosurfers above, except it uses a different engine and pays a whole lot less. Just like Panelapp above, I don't really recommend this one but it exists and it is effortless, so maybe you would be more inclined to care than I.

Surfe.be (Non-Ref): This one is only passive if used in conjunction with the Autosurfers and/or eBesucher above (making the use of eBesucher much more worthwhile). What it does is add a banner to the bottom of your browser which reloads every time you go to a new page and pays you each time it does so. Considering each of the Autosurfers you are running reload to a new page every minute, that can add up to a decent amount fairly quickly. I recommend running this and all of your Autosurfers on a different browser to what you usually use to surf the internet, to avoid it negatively impacting your experience. I use Opera for my Autosurfers and Chrome for regular browsing.

RadioEarn (Non-Ref): This is a bit like HideoutTV except instead of playing videos, it only plays audio. Just mute it and leave it running for about $0.30 a day.

Packetstream (Non-Ref): If you have an unlimited internet plan, you can install this on your computer and they will syphon off a bit of your internet and pay you for the privilege. They don't seem to take much so you won't even notice the difference but your experience may be very different to mine - they probably just don't take much from me because my internet speed is terrible. If you have a decent connection, they might take a lot more from you. They pay $0.10 per gigabyte that they use, so even if you don't have unlimited internet you should be able to profit as long as you are paying less than that.

Honeyminer (Non-Ref): This is traight up crypto mining, although it is done more efficiently than most as this software is able to make use of both your CPU and GPU simultaneously. If your computer is powerful enough, you will earn about $3 worth of bitcoin each day. Still, I don't really recommend this option unless you have access to cheap/free electricity and cheap/free computer components. Otherwise the wear and tear on your computer and extra electricity costs will likely push you in to unprofitability. Another option is Shortest Miner (Non-Ref). It does the exact same thing but with less efficiency, what it does do however is automatically convert it all to cash, so if you don't want to have to deal with crypto but want to mine, then it is your best way.

How many times can Digital Gold IE be increased by halving for the first time

How many times can Digital Gold IE be increased by halving for the first time
By @IoT_explorer https://link.medium.com/um1TPv95iZ

Internet Development Gradually Excludes Centralized Control
With the penetration of the Internet into our economic life, we can gradually realize that the balanced distribution of information promotes economic development. We can see that the Internet effectively mobilizes resources by improving the old structure. Therefore, from a certain point of view, the development of the Internet will gradually exclude the control of centralized rights. Although centralized management of important resources can solve the problem of trust in asset transactions, the long-term result of centralized rights may be resource monopoly and lack of fairness.

https://preview.redd.it/2dp5ykdgolh31.png?width=700&format=png&auto=webp&s=75830cdcee251503800c23fc12227e1c3daf9a34
Since the 1970s, with the birth of TCP/IP and HTTP, the development of the Internet has begun. Protocol and open source make the Internet develop rapidly. Microsoft launched the famous Internet Explorer. In addition, the birth of Bitcoin in 2008, the rapid development of blockchains, can start the blockchain browser; this is with the development of blockchains, big data, artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things to start the Internet of Things browser.
Five Fingers of Digital Economy
For the next economic trend, most people will adhere to the more extreme attitudes such as “the interconnection of all things is the next era”, “the Internet is artificial intelligence”, “digital currency is the future”, “the cloud will subvert all business models”, “hardware, communications will constitute the backbone of the digital economy”, and so on. It is widely believed that embracing a technology can fully enter the digital economy era.
In fact, from a macro point of view, “Internet of Things”, “Artificial Intelligence”, “Cloud Service”, “Blockchain” and “Communication Upgrade” are the five fingers of the digital economy, which are indispensable. If these five technologies connect with each other and can open up a strong social access to the market, the digital economy era will really open up. Here we go!
Decentralized Internet of Things Consensus
IoTE is the Internet of Things Explorer, its main network token is IE currency, official website: https://www.iote.one.Through the construction of anonymous decentralized network to layout the scene of “Interconnection of all things”. Among them, Internet of Things devices, that is, hardware systems, have become the main “network users” instead of people. In the future, IoTE hopes to integrate artificial intelligence and other technologies into the network ecology one by one and form an efficient, safe and stable closed-loop.

https://preview.redd.it/0dmwfdkjolh31.png?width=640&format=png&auto=webp&s=c39dcb803cdcb29c502f496a704c2e6b46a76fa6
IoTE is an Internet of Things resource manager with emerging technologies. It is dedicated to exploratory technology in the field of interconnection and interoperability between devices from different sources. It is truly super-book-centric. It will not only protect data based on future IPFS data storage protocol, but also use DAG data structure to ensure the interaction speed of TPS. 。 The creation of IoTE not only comes from the calculation mining of Bitcoin, everyone can participate in this account book to truly achieve decentralization, but also uses CryptoVantaa’s original algorithm, which is CPU-friendly and resistant to GPU and ASIC. The total number of IoTE coins is 2 billion, never increasing, and 70% of them are obtained through mining.
Why will IE develop into digital gold?
IoTE carries out data security, privacy protection and value transfer in the field of Internet, resource manager, and records all kinds of data in this field. The goal is to achieve payment and equipment settlement, value investment, and better communication mode in the field of investment and financing than the traditional one. Because IE coin serves the de-centralized Internet of Things scenario, the first is that IE will show an alarming upward trend with the expansion of the Internet of Things scenario; the second is that mining revenue and calculation adjustment are all considered from the governance of the Internet of Things ecosystem, unlike the Bitcoin network, which only aims to dig out all the bitcoins without making a long time. Thirdly, the anonymity technology of IE respects the privacy protection of users, and more and more institutions and users will tend to the transaction mode of IE in the “global start” state that the development of the Federation of Things must go through.

https://preview.redd.it/drg45x3oolh31.png?width=700&format=png&auto=webp&s=fee0820be2b41a78b70852350884b8f4a6457a50
From the point of view of PoS master node, the number of master nodes has reached more than 830, and a master node based on 150,000 IoTE coins has been built, locking in 121.5 million chips. At present, the total amount of money out of the network is only 180 million. It can be seen that the enthusiasm of PoS main node mining is also rising.
From IoTE Upline to Blockchain Landing
According to the above analysis, IE network construction is carried out around the Internet of Things scenario in the global opening, and IE coins are issued globally for the development of IoTE’s Internet of Things business.
Let’s take a look at the process. First, the IoTE main network will be launched globally on February 11, 2019, and the masternode node system will be launched on May 10, 2019.

https://preview.redd.it/ptbvbtuqolh31.png?width=500&format=png&auto=webp&s=2fd4f1280bab172bb0d58fe218098117673f3e30
IoTE uses a PoW + iPoS hybrid consensus mechanism, which ensures both decentralized data validation and efficient operation. PoS master node can get 35% block reward, double-layer network architecture can speed up the network and choose anonymity to ensure privacy. The first six stages of the IoTE block reward are halved every six months, while the number of rewards in the seventh stage remains unchanged until the excavation is completed.
IoTE mining pools are mostly private pools, many of which are overseas private pools. Moreover, the computing power has gradually risen from dozens of K to a maximum of 2.5MH/s. At present, it is maintained at 1.5MH/s, which is equivalent to tens of thousands of ordinary computers in the world participating in mining at the same time – —It can be inferred that PoW arithmetic is also involved in the potential project .
Halving Production and Rising Prices
IE will begin the first round of block awards halving in August . Before predicting the halving results, Let’s look at the historical trend of Bitcoin halving.
The first halving of Bitcoin took place on November 28, 2012. After halving, Bitcoin reached a peak of $1175 on November 30, 2013, after the first halving.
The second halving took place on July 9, 2016. On May 20, before halving, a wave of calves rose from $430 to $789.8 and peaked at $19891 on December 16, 2017.
(1) The price of Bitcoin increased from $3 to $10 a year before the first halving. When halving occurs, Bitcoin opens a bull market with a 20-fold increase in price from $10 to $200.
(2) The price of Bitcoin increased from $300 to $1,000 a year before the second half-cut. When the halving happens, Bitcoin opens a bull market with a price increase of 20 times from $1,000 to $20,000.
It can be seen that every half of Bitcoin production can rise more than 20 times, and the first half of IoTE production can rise several times, which is worth looking forward to.
IoTE Innovation Halving Economic Model
According to the IoTE White Paper, in the first six stages, the block awards recorded by PoW will be halved every six months, while in the seventh stage, the number of block awards will remain unchanged.
According to a veteran miner, IoTE will produce huge amount in the first half year, nearly 1.3 million pieces a day, and will reach 230 million pieces a half year. However, in the first three years, it is going to halve every half year, and after three years, the reward of each block will reduce to 66 pieces, and the output of one day was reduced to 47520 pieces. It will take IoTE three years to complete the 24-year development of Bitcoin.
On February 11, 2019, the main network of IoTE came online. It is inferred that the first half of IoTE will occur at the height of 132000 block, which corresponds to August 21, 2019.
Each half of Bitcoin’s output can rise by more than 20 times, and IoTE’s future value growth space is better than Bitcoin’s, because IE serves the digital scene on its network. What kind of increase will IoTE halve bring for the first time? We will wait and see!

What Is Merged Mining?

Cryptocurrency mining is a broad subject, with many different facets. There are a number of different ways in which mining can be done, ranging from traditional dedicated hardware mining, like the ASICs, GPU mining, cloud mining or web browser mining, to name some.
However, a very interesting and less known concept is the one of merged mining. This process entails the mining of two coins that are based on the same algorithm, simultaneously. Basically, merged mining allows a miner to mine on more than one blockchain at a time. The added benefit to this is that the miner will contribute to both of the blockchain’s hashrates, hence increasing their security (lower threat of a 51% attack) and functionality.
Satoshi Nakamoto himself has written on the subject, in this Bitcointalk post from 2010 regarding Bitcoin specifically, saying:
I think it would be possible for BitDNS to be a completely separate network and separate block chain, yet share CPU power with Bitcoin. The only overlap is to make it so miners can search for proof-of-work for both networks simultaneously.
The networks wouldn’t need any coordination. Miners would subscribe to both networks in parallel. They would scan SHA such that if they get a hit, they potentially solve both at once. A solution may be for just one of the networks if one network has a lower difficulty.
I think an external miner could call getwork on both programs and combine the work. Maybe call Bitcoin, get work from it, hand it to BitDNS getwork to combine into a combined work.
Instead of fragmentation, networks share and augment each other’s total CPU power. This would solve the problem that if there are multiple networks, they are a danger to each other if the available CPU power gangs up on one. Instead, all networks in the world would share combined CPU power, increasing the total strength. It would make it easier for small networks to get started by tapping into a ready base of miners.
Perhaps the most discussed examples of merged mining are the pairs Bitcoin & Namecoin and Litecoin & Dogecoin. In a merged mining process, there always has to be a parent blockchain and an auxiliary one.
This process does not require any additional computing power from the miners, which is a big advantage.
First, a block of transactions for each chain has to be assembled. The next step is simply starting to mine. During the process there are 3 possible outcomes:
The biggest disadvantage of implementing merged mining is that within the auxiliary chain, there is implementation and development work involved and when switching, a hard fork is needed.
Overall, merged mining benefits miners, not so much investors, however it does offer other perks like increased security for the actual networks. Could be the perfect approach for new projects, in terms of protecting themselves from a 51% attack for example. It is an interesting implementation which more people should be aware of.

What is a Cryptocurrency Wallet?

What is a Cryptocurrency Wallet?
Use this straightforward guide to learn what a cryptocurrency wallet is, how they work and discover which ones are the best on the market.
A cryptocurrency wallet is a software program that stores private and public keys and interacts with various blockchain to enable users to send and receive digital currency and monitor their balance. If you want to use Bitcoin or any other cryptocurrency, you will need to have a digital wallet.
How do they work?
Millions of people use cryptocurrency wallets, but there is considerable misunderstanding about how they work. Unlike traditional ‘pocket’ wallets, digital wallets don’t store currency. In fact, currencies don’t get stored in any single location or exist anywhere in any physical form. All that exists are records of transactions stored on the blockchain.
Cryptocurrency wallets are software programs that store your public and private keys and interface with various blockchain so users can monitor their balance, send money and conduct other operations. When a person sends you bitcoins or any other type of digital currency, they are essentially signing off ownership of the coins to your wallet’s address. To be able to spend those coins and unlock the funds, the private key stored in your wallet must match the public address the currency is assigned to. If public and private keys match, the balance in your digital wallet will increase, and the senders will decrease accordingly. There is no actual exchange of real coins. The transaction is signified merely by a transaction record on the blockchain and a change in balance in your cryptocurrency wallet.
What are the different types of Cryptocurrencywallets?
There are several types of wallets that provide different ways to store and access your digital currency. Wallets can be broken down into three distinct categories – software, hardware, and paper. Software wallets can be a desktop, mobile or online.
Are Cryptocurrency wallets secure?
Wallets are secure to varying degrees. The level of security depends on the type of wallet you use (desktop, mobile, online, paper, hardware) and the service provider. A web server is an intrinsically riskier environment to keep your currency compared to offline. Online wallets can expose users to possible vulnerabilities in the wallet platform which can be exploited by hackers to steal your funds. Offline wallets, on the other hand, cannot be hacked because they simply aren’t connected to an online network and don’t rely on a third party for security.
Although online wallets have proven the most vulnerable and prone to hacking attacks, diligent security precautions need to be implemented and followed when using any wallet. Remember that no matter which wallet you use, losing your private keys will lead you to lose your money. Similarly, if your wallet gets hacked, or you send money to a scammer, there is no way to reclaim lost currency or reverse the transaction. You must take precautions and be very careful!
Although Bitcoin is by far the most well-known and popular digital currency, hundreds of newcryptocurrencies (referred to as altcoins) have emerged, each with distinctive ecosystems and infrastructure. If you’re interested in using a variety of cryptocurrencies, the good news is, you don’t need set up a separate wallet for each currency. Instead of using a cryptocurrency wallet that supports a single currency, it may be more convenient to set up a multi-currency wallet which enables you to use several currencies from the same wallet.
Are there any transaction fees?
There is no straightforward answer here.
In general, transaction fees are a tiny fraction of traditional bank fees. Sometimes fees need to be paid for certain types of transactions to network miners as a processing fee, while some transactions don’t have any fee at all. It’s also possible to set your own fee. As a guide, the median transaction size of 226 bytes would result in a fee of 18,080 satoshis or $0.12. In some cases, if you choose to set a low fee, your transaction may get low priority, and you might have to wait hours or even days for the transaction to get confirmed. If you need your transaction completed and confirmed promptly, then you might need to increase the amount you’re willing to pay. Whatever wallet you end up using, transaction fees are not something you should worry about. You will either pay minuscule transaction fees, choose your own fees or pay no fees at all. A definite improvement from the past!
Are cryptocurrency wallets anonymous?
Kind of, but not really. Wallets are pseudonymous. While wallets aren’t tied to the actual identity of a user, all transactions are stored publicly and permanently on the blockchain. Your name or personal street address won’t be there, but data like your wallet address could be traced to your identity in a number of ways. While there are efforts underway to make anonymity and privacy easier to achieve, there are obvious downsides to full anonymity. Check out the DarkWallet project that is looking to beef up privacy and anonymity through stealth addresses and coin mixing.
Which Cryptocurrency wallet is the best?
There is an ever-growing list of options. Before picking a wallet, you should, however, consider how you intend to use it.
Bread Wallet
Bread Wallet is a simple mobile Bitcoin digital wallet that makes sending bitcoins as easy as sending an email. The wallet can be downloaded from the App Store or Google Play. Bread Wallet offers a standalone client, so there is no server to use when sending or receiving bitcoins. That means users can access their money and are in full control of their funds at all times. Overall, Bread Wallet’s clean interface, lightweight design and commitment to continually improve security, make the application safe, fast and a pleasure to use for both beginners and experienced users alike.
Mycelium
Advanced users searching for a Bitcoin mobile digital wallet, should look no further than mycelium. The Mycelium mobile wallet allows iPhone and Android users to send and receive bitcoins and keep complete control over bitcoins. No third party can freeze or lose your funds! With enterprise-level security superior to most other apps and features like cold storage and encrypted PDF backups, an integrated QR-code scanner, a local trading marketplace and secure chat amongst others, you can understand why Mycelium has long been regarded as one of the best wallets on the market.
Exodus
Exodus is a relatively new and unknown digital wallet that is currently only available on the desktop. It enables the storage and trading of Bitcoin, Ether, Litecoins, Dogecoins and Dash through an incredibly easy to use, intuitive and beautiful interface. Exodus also offers a very simple guide to backup your wallet. One of the great things about Exodus is that it has a built-in shapeshift exchange that allows users to trade altcoins for bitcoins and vice versa without leaving the wallet.
Copay
Created by Bitpay, Copay is one of the best digital wallets on the market. If you’re looking for convenience, Copay is easily accessed through a user-friendly interface on desktop, mobile or online. One of the best things about Copay is that it’s a multi-signature wallet so friends or business partners can share funds. Overall, Copay has something for everyone. It’s simple enough for entry-level users but has plenty of additional geeky features that will impress more experienced players as well.
Jaxx
Jaxx is a multi-currency Ether, Ether Classic, Dash, DAO, Litecoin, REP, Zcash, Rootstock, Bitcoin wallet and user interface. Jaxx has been designed to deliver a smooth Bitcoin and Ethereum experience. It is available on a variety of platforms and devices (Windows, Linux, Chrome, Firefox, OSX, Android mobile & tablet, iOS mobile & tablet) and connects with websites through Firefox and Chrome extensions. Jaxx allows in wallet conversion between Bitcoin, Ether and DAO tokens via Shapeshift and the import of Ethereum paper wallets. With an array of features and the continual integration of new currencies, Jaxx is an excellent choice for those who require a multi-currency wallet.
Armory
Armory is an open source Bitcoin desktop wallet perfect for experienced users that place emphasis on security. Some of Armory’s features include cold storage, multi-signature transactions, one-time printable backups, multiple wallets interface, GPU-resistant wallet encryption, key importing, key sweeping and more. Although Armory takes a little while to understand and use to it’s full potential, it’s a great option for more tech-savvy bitcoiners looking to keep their funds safe and secure.
Trezor is a hardware Bitcoin wallet that is ideal for storing large amounts of bitcoins. Trezor cannot be infected by malware and never exposes your private keys which make it as safe as holding traditional paper money. Trezor is open source and transparent, with all technical decisions benefiting from wider community consultation. It’s easy to use, has an intuitive interface and is Windows, OS X and Linux friendly. One of the few downsides of the Trezor wallet is that it must be with you to send bitcoins. This, therefore, makes Trezor best for inactive savers, investors or people who want to keep large amounts of Bitcoin highly secure.
Ledger Nano
The Ledger Wallet Nano is a new hierarchical deterministic multisig hardware wallet for bitcoin users that aims to eliminate a number of attack vectors through the use of a second security layer. This tech-heavy description does not mean much to the average consumer, though, which is why I am going to explain it in plain language, describing what makes the Ledger Wallet Nano tick. In terms of hardware, the Ledger Wallet Nano is a compact USB device based on a smart card. It is roughly the size of a small flash drive, measuring 39 x 13 x 4mm (1.53 x 0.51 x 0.16in) and weighing in at just 5.9g.
Pros:
Cons:
Green Address
Green Address is a user-friendly Bitcoin wallet that’s an excellent choice for beginners. Green Address is accessible via desktop, online or mobile with apps available for Chrome, iOS, and Android. Features include multi-signature addresses & two-factor authentications for enhanced security, paper wallet backup, and instant transaction confirmation. A downside is that Green Address is required to approve all payments, so you do not have full control over your spending
Blockchain (dot) info
Blockchain is one of the most popular Bitcoin wallets. Accessing this wallet can be done from any browser or smartphone. Blockchain.info provides two different additional layers. For the browser version, users can enable two-factor authentication, while mobile users can activate a pin code requirement every time the wallet application is opened. Although your wallet will be stored online and all transactions will need to go through the company’s servers, Blockchain.info does not have access to your private keys. Overall, this is a well-established company that is trusted throughout the Bitcoin community and makes for a solid wallet to keep your currency.

ELi5/AMA Cryptocurrency & Mining Thread

Based upon interest shown in my post here earlier today, the following is a ELi5 and AMA post on my perspective as a cryptocurrency investor and miner, specifically how I see the cryptocurrency space impacting AMD's performance in the near to medium term (0-3 years).
My Background:
I am not a computer scientist, and many on this form know significantly more than I ever will in regards to computing, computing hardware design, and software. Take this into consideration when reading my post, and feel free to open up discussion if you disagree with me. I am always looking to learn / assess new perspectives.
I do though have a background in STEM, until recently have followed AMD, Intel, and NVIDIA closely in regards to consumer and enthusiast hardware release, and have been mining Ethereum on a hand-built machine for roughly the past year, and investing in crypto for a decent amount of time as well. Given this, I believe that I can provide insight into the cryptocurrency and crypto mining realm, which is tightly coupled to AMD's GPU sales.
My Motivation for Writing This:
About a year ago I was a daily browser of this sub. Check my profile history if you wish. It was this very sub that gave me confidence to make my first investments outside of a 401k. Through this sub’s members I laid a foundation for making future investments that I will carry with me through life.
How I Got Started In Cryptocurrency:
Ironically, my start in cryptocurrency came through this very sub. As a daily follower of AMD_STOCK, during the initial Ethereum run-up early last year AMD and NVIDIA GPU’s were selling like hotcakes. Prices for GPU’s released months prior were rising instead of falling. I had no clue what a cryptocurrency even was. I distinctly remember reading through a post on this sub explaining the GPU shortage. It was simply “Ethereum”. I don’t know why, but this post struck me more than it should have. How could a shortage of hundreds of thousands of GPUs, totaling millions of dollars, be summed up in one word? This was the entrance to the rabbit whole that is cryptocurrency, or what I think is more telling, the financial and supply chain tech revolution.
Cryptocurrency Eli5:
Cryptocurrency is currently so much more than Bitcoin. Cryptocurrency is currently the financial, supply chain, + whatever else it ends up touching, technology revolution that is currently taking place as we speak. Cryptocurrency simply is a set of protocols that allow monetary/data transaction, smart contracts (think “if a, do b”), and/or storage in a distributed and trustless way, without a middle man.
Eli5:
It is a system that allows you and little Johnny from down the street to pay each other allowance money for things, without your mommies needing to get involved to make sure no one is getting cheated (Peer to Peer Payments). It can also allow you and Johnny to make deals with each other, and Johnny won’t be able to get out of it by saying “just kidding” later on (Smart Contracts). In both of these cases, you and Johnny write down the agreed upon payment, deal, information on a piece of paper, sign your names, and then send it out to everyone you know. Once those people recognize your and Johnny’s signature they sign it as well (distributed ledger). If there are any disagreements later, you look at the piece of paper and see what actually happened. For much more detail, visit cryptocurrency or some of the other cryptocurrency subs.
Proof of Work (PoW) vs Proof of Stake (PoS):
I had talked previously about handing out a copy of transactions to other peers for consensus. I was referring to a distributed ledger. This allows those who use the network to look over previous transactions and come to an agreement upon past history, avoid double spends (someone giving the same dollar to two different people), and verify a user’s current funds. Well, it doesn’t exactly work like that, and different cryptocurrencies employ different “consensus mechanism’s”. IT IS THESE CONSENSUS MECHANISMS THAT ARE OF IMPORTANCE AS AMD INVESTORS. I’ll try to go through the most prominent ones below.
Consensus Mechanisms:
Eli5: They solve the question: What if you and Johnny both hand out copies containing different information? Who decides what the truth is?
Proof of Work (PoW): Eli5: Proof of Work is like if you and Johnny hand out copies of your transactions to each of your classmates, the teacher decides that this isn’t a democracy, and that not everyone gets to vote on what they think happened. The teacher says that for each math problem in today’s math quiz a student gets right, they get one vote to put in the jar up at the front of the class. After the quiz is done and everyone puts their votes in the jar, the teacher then reaches in and grabs a random vote on if you or Johnny were telling the truth. It is then recorded. Also, the student’s who’s vote was selected gets a gold star today (mining rewards, what makes this all profitable for miners). How is AMD involved in this? AMD’s GPU’s are what solves the math problems for the students in this example. The more math problems that they can solve correctly before the quiz is over, the higher chance that they have at getting to decide what is recorded on the ledger, and thus receive mining rewards (free cryptocurrency).
Proof of Stake (PoS):
Eli5: Well the teacher decided that she didn’t like doing math tests anymore because they took too much time and thought that the paper and pencils consumed during the quiz’s were a waste of the school’s resources (electricity used in PoW). She decided that instead, each student would get one vote based upon how many gold stars (how much cryptocurrency) they already have. But the catch is, if a student is caught lying somehow on their vote, they get all of their current gold stars taken away. This is what is “At Stake” in the Proof of Stake model. How does this differ from PoW from an AMD perspective? Well, if you haven’t noticed, there are no more math problems to be solved in this model, thus high-performance GPUs are not necessary for PoS mining. This provides several advantages in terms of energy savings, but would not be good for AMD’s sales.
The Current State of The Market in Regards to PoW vs PoS:
Currently, a majority of cryptocurrencies operate on the PoW model, but that ratio is dwindling as currencies switch over to PoS models. PoS is seen to provide several advantages, with major ones being energy efficiency and a potential reduced transaction time. Major cryptocurrencies using PoW include Ethereum, Monero, Zcash, etc.. with the most profitable over the past year usually being Ethereum. Ethereum is currently planning on switching over to a PoS model, but that transition has been delayed, and now has planned to first transition to a hybrid model of PoW and PoS before fully transferring over to PoS. I have not heard any rumors from Monero or Zcash about transitioning over to PoS in the short term.
My Perspective/Predictions on AMD GPU Sales Over the Short and Medium Term:
  1. Cryptocurrency over the medium term will continue to flourish/rise. There may be a major “crash” in the future, but I believe that is at least a year away, and a crash event would still leave the total market cap higher than it currently is valued at ~600 Billion dollars.
  2. It will be 1+ year before a significant portion of current major PoW currencies phase out PoW for PoS.
  3. AMD will continue to sell out GPU products for the foreseeable future (~1 year) as 1 & 2 above create a recipe for sustained/increased profitability in cryptocurrency mining.
  4. Long Term – PoW will likely fade away as PoS grows in popularity. I foresee this happening in the 1-3 year time frame. What happens to AMD? Well, if the transition happens fast, gaming GPUs will flood the market and their new hardware sales will obviously be challenged to compete. If the transition happens slower, I see the trend being less violent to AMD as a company if they can keep performance improvements from generation to generation up. Although there will still be a flood of cheap used hardware on the market, before sufficient hardware floods the market new higher performance hardware could be released making old hardware obsolete for mid to high end gamers. This would be a huge win for AMD investors as it would minimize any impact to sales.
  5. Because of the statement above, pay close attention to the PoS transition timeframe for Ethereum. This will be the first mass selloff of consumer GPUs.
Things I did not Cover:
  1. AMD GPUs are typically more profitable than NVIDIA’s for cryptocurrency mining and why.
  2. You cannot mine Bitcoin with consumer GPUs profitably. They require custom hardware (ASIC).
  3. Getting into the actual process of how to mine (see the many Ethereum mining subs like ethermining for answers).
  4. Have I made a profit – Yes, I have paid off my investment and then some.
  5. What do I think of mining vs just investing – Okay I’ll answer this one. I personally would choose to invest directly into the cryptocurrencies over mining, unless you are using your existing gaming GPU, as I believe that investing will yield potentially an order of magnitude higher ROI over the next 2-5 years. Start with cryptocurrency and go from there. If you have specific questions, feel free to PM me. This is coming from a miner mind you.
  6. What coins are profitable and what to mine? This website is a good resource: https://whattomine.com/
  7. My exit plan for the market? Well, I’ve stated above that I think a major crash (greater than 50%, we see 50% crashes every 3 or so months, but these are often largely exceeded by gains after) in this market will likely dip to current or slightly below current total market cap. I could be wrong though, but that’s a risk I am willing to take given my deep dive on this space. I currently hold currencies that will pay PoS mining rewards. I plan to sell these rewards.
Thanks for reading guys. I hope you found some useful information. If you have questions or see anything you disagree with feel free to comment!
TLDR: I see cryptocurrency, cryptocurrency mining, and thus AMD GPU sales holding strong for the foreseeable short term ~1 year. This is just my opinion, do your own research, I could be wrong, but I live in this space.

Something is keeping my GPU under load

I have a GTX 970 MSI 4GT5D or something.
I always monitor my GPU CPU temps etc but lately something is keeping my GPU under load at anything from 1-7% and keeping it from downclocking itself to 135 mhz which is what it is supposed to stay at idle. This leaves me back with gpu noise, higher tempratures etc.
IS there a program to see what program is using my GPU's resources? so I can identify it? I have quit every background application apart from avast.
I use google Chrome now.
I monitor my GPU using MSI Afterburner, GPU-Z and OpenHardwareMonitor and they report the same.

Passive Income for the Poor: Putting Your Devices to Work

The general theory behind passive income is that it either requires a lot of start-up work, or you need to invest. The thing is though, is that most of us have already made the necessary investments and we just don't realize it. If you have invested in a computer, or an Android device, then you already have all you need to start getting yourself some passive income.
This is the collection of everything that you can have your devices doing for you in order to earn some passive income. If you do them all, you will be looking at around an extra $5-$10 a day depending on what devices you have access to.

MoneySMS: Install the app and wait for them to send you txt messages. Each time they send you a message, you get paid€0.02 and you can expect an average of two messages per day. If you set your phone's default message notification to silent and give everyone in your address book their own notification sound, then you won't be annoyed about the constant txt messages. Important: When signing up, be sure to input a referral code: Doing so will earn you an extra €0.25. Mine is E4DD57B65 and I'd be grateful if you used it.

McMoney: Same deal as MoneySMS. Install the app, receive txt messages periodically, and get paid. This one seems to pay different people different amounts, based on unknown variables. I get paid $0.065 per txt message and average about 1 per day.

Cash Magnet: Install the app and a bunch of other apps it needs to run, turn it on and leave it be. It will view ads and install games and pay you half of the revenue it generates. It will give you about $0.50 a day per device (up to a limit of 4) so it is well worth using. The only real issue with this one is that it requires a lot of memory on your phone. You really need at least two gigabytes spare on your device to make the best use of it.

Electroneum: Install this app on your phone and tell it to start mining. It doesn't actually mine anything on the phone - it is all cloud mining. In return you get some cryptocurrency which can be traded for money. Each day will get you about $0.04 worth. Important: When signing up, be sure to input a referral code. Doing so will earn you an extra 1% more money for life. Mine is AD4EBC and I'd be grateful if you used it.

Panel App: Install the app and just wait until it generates enough credit to get yourself a prepaid Mastercard. Or just don't - I don't really recommend this one as it pays really low (about $5 a year it seems) but it is free and effortless, so I figured someone might be interested.

HideoutTV: This is entirely browser-based, so you can run it on anything, although you can't use both it and Cash Magnet at the same time and CM pays more, so if you only have an Android, then run CM instead. If you have a 5th Android to spare or a computer to use, then sign up to both this and Earnably. You need them both, but when you have them you can use them to run videos which will pay ads on occasion and pay you half of the revenue, averaging to about $0.35 per day. This one isn't entirely passive as you will need to click every few hours to keep it running, but you are only looking at about 3 clicks per day.

Autosurfers: Click that link, sign up to each and every one of them, and run them all on a single computer. They just automatically surf specific webpages each minute and pay you for each page that loads Between the lot, you are looking at about $2 a day but make sure you read that link as it highlights some important setup aspects you will need to know about.

eBesucher: This is the exact same deal as the Autosurfers above, except it uses a different engine and pays a whole lot less. Just like Panelapp above, I don't really recommend this one but it exists and it is effortless, so maybe you would be more inclined to care than I.

Surfe.be: This one is only passive if used in conjunction with the Autosurfers and/or eBesucher above (making the use of eBesucher much more worthwhile). What it does is add a banner to the bottom of your browser which reloads every time you go to a new page and pays you each time it does so. Considering each of the Autosurfers you are running reload to a new page every minute, that can add up to a decent amount fairly quickly. I recommend running this and all of your Autosurfers on a different browser to what you usually use to surf the internet, to avoid it negatively impacting your experience. I use Opera for my Autosurfers and Chrome for regular browsing.

RadioEarn: This is a bit like HideoutTV except instead of playing videos, it only plays audio. Just mute it and leave it running for about $0.30 a day.

Packetstream: If you have an unlimited internet plan, you can install this on your computer and they will syphon off a bit of your internet and pay you for the privilege. They don't seem to take much so you won't even notice the difference but your experience may be very different to mine - they probably just don't take much from me because my internet speed is terrible. If you have a decent connection, they might take a lot more from you. They pay $0.10 per gigabyte that they use, so even if you don't have unlimited internet you should be able to profit as long as you are paying less than that.

Honeyminer: This is traight up crypto mining, although it is done more efficiently than most as this software is able to make use of both your CPU and GPU simultaneously. If your computer is powerful enough, you will earn about $3 worth of bitcoin each day. Still, I don't really recommend this option unless you have access to cheap/free electricity and cheap/free computer components. Otherwise the wear and tear on your computer and extra electricity costs will likely push you in to unprofitability. Another option is Shortest Miner. It does the exact same thing but with less efficiency, what it does do however is automatically convert it all to cash, so if you don't want to have to deal with crypto but want to mine, then it is your best way.

Why I love Botnet & Browser Mining.

I think a chaotic and constantly changing mining environment is good for decentralization.
There is something called the competitive exclusion principle which states: two species competing for the same limiting resource cannot coexist at constant population values. When one species has even the slightest advantage over another, the one with the advantage will dominate in the long term. This leads either to the extinction of this competitor or to an evolutionary or behavioral shift toward a different ecological niche. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Competitive_exclusion_principle
Now, all miners are competing for the exact same thing: the block reward. If cost of electricity, cost of hardware, difficulty/difficulty increase, and every other factor were constant, the most savvy miner could continuously reinvest their profits and eventually overtake the entire network. The more constant it is, the more likely you'll see centralization: look at how few and how big the mining pools for Bitcoin are becoming.
Imagine if a government were to strategically reduce/remove taxes and subsidize electrical costs for ASIC miners: instantly, miners in that country would be more profitable than anywhere else and soon the majority of miners would be in that country. . That country could easily have 51%+ the mining power, and ultimately could sieze the miners hardware if they don't cooperate with them.
Alternatively, imagine a place with cheap electricity, and a use for the heat generated. Imagine a place like Sweden or Canada. Maybe the heat generation could be used for greenhouses or heating Walmarts since it's a cold place, and the electricity is cheap.
The fact that we can have smaller GPU/CPU miners, botnet mining, browser mining, and that the GPU/CPU have higher utility for different things: different coins, gaming, artificial intelligence computation, etc, etc ultimately means we have a far higher and more chaotic environment which will ultimately reduce the risk of centralization.
If a government were to try the same attack on us, we'd likely be more decentralized: web browser mining and botnets already get electricity for free. People with certain rent/dorm rooms have fixed costs and are getting their electricity for free, which combined with the fact that the barrier to entry for mining is far lower (any computer vs buying an ASIC miner from China), they are more likely to do it.
Botnets are not stable. Computers get updated, exploits get fixed etc so botnet mining is a great source of chaos.
ASICs, as I think we can observe in the real world is bad for decentralization. The reason they are bad is the same reason why CPU and GPU mining is good for decentralization. Anything that adds chaos and uncertainty to mining makes it more decentralized because the constantly changing environment allows for different strategies to be more profitable for certain periods of times and nothing can become so well established as to take over the network.

Internet Nostalgia and the Future of Cryptocurrency — my personal story!

In the early 1990’s, when I was just a kid, my family purchased our first personal computer. It was a top of the line system with an Intel 486[i] processor running at a whopping 33MHz, 4MB of memory and a 33MB hard drive running MS-DOS[ii]! Although my trusted “MS-DOS for Dummies” handbook taught me everything I needed to know, the computer seemed more like a novelty than anything useful.
Nonetheless, I remember playing games like Chuck Yeager’s Air Combat[iii] and Hard Drivin’[iv] and many others. I also remember visiting our local Radio Shack for new software and the latest releases from the Tandy Corporation[v]. In fact, every now and then, my grandmother would take me to Radio Shack and buy me a new computer game (thanks grandma!)
A few years later, I started hearing about something called the “Internet.” However, I had no idea what it could do or how to “access” it. Then, one day, while visiting my local library, I discovered that their public computer was connected to the internet — and the World Wide Web!
Not only that, the library also offered a free program to help people connect their home computers to the internet[vi]. Once my family signed up, the library supervisor gave us a floppy disk with the required software, settings and instructions.
Now, keep in mind, I was not even a teenager at this time, and, on top of that, my family didn’t have a clue about tech. In fact, I remember my mother and grandmother looking at our new home computer as if it was an alien ship that just landed. So, basically, except for the floppy disc and the library supervisor, I was on my own! Somehow, I had to figure out how to set the whole thing up, and since internet technology was new to the public, I couldn’t find any references to model. And, of course, there was no google! Looking back, I must have driven the library supervisor crazy with all my questions!
Nevertheless, after buying a new computer with an awesome 100MHz processor and a 28kbit/s modem, and, almost a month later, I finally heard the magical beeps and static sounds of the free internet, and since the internet connection was provided by my local library, I was greeted with the library’s web page — Thank you Merrick Library!
Even though the whole internet consisted of plain black text[vii], I thought, “Wow, this is amazing! HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE!!!!”
With a sense of keen curiosity, I browsed the Usenet[viii] where people connected with one another and I searched the internet with WebCrawler[ix], and I even downloaded some images. However, there really wasn’t too much to discover, and before long, I brushed the internet off as another novelty and went back to playing computer games.
Then, about a year later, my local grocery store started offering free floppy discs for AOL[x], and I convinced my family to sign up for AOL’s free trial. Shortly thereafter, I was greeted with the iconic, “You’ve Got Mail!” However, the internet I discovered this time was no longer just plain black text!
I’ll never forget the first moment I saw the internet in full color with images! It took my breath away and the feeling of excitement was beyond profound!
At that point for me, the internet had blossomed into something extraordinary! And, along with vibrantly colored photos everywhere, there was a new website called Yahoo![xi]
Although few recognized it at the time, this was the beginning of the Dot-Com bubble, and not only would it change the internet, it would change the world!
Fast forward more than two decades to 2009, and now as an adult with my own son.
Something very different was beginning to stir, and it was called “Bitcoin” — a currency for the internet.
Although it was considered nothing more than an obscure idea at the time, it sparked something inside me — it was that same curious feeling I had when I first discovered the "text based" internet!
Even though I didn’t know much about this new oddity, I knew that I could use my computing power to generate something called Bitcoins. I thought, “Why not?“
So, after joining one of the first Bitcoin mining pools, I had my computer mine for a few days. This meant leaving my computer on non-stop with my GPU fan at full speed. In return, I earned 0.63BTC which was worth about $1.00USD at the time — with such little financial gain, I didn’t see the point of mining nor the feasibility of Bitcoin — so I stopped mining and forgot about Bitcoin.
Sometime later, I started hearing about Bitcoin again, but, this time, in some very different contexts:
Shortly after all the negativity began, I decided to learn more about Bitcoin. As my research unfolded, I began to comprehend “blockchain technology” as well as the potentials for technological advancement.
Once I understood the foundational premise of Bitcoin technology, I jumped in for real! I purchased Bitcoins, I started mining Litecoins (and others), and I continued to learn and evolve as a crypto miner, investor, trader, and loyal supporter.
Now, just 9 short years after the genesis block, Bitcoin has some new contexts:
Even as amazing as Bitcoin is today, I believe that it’s just the beginning of something much greater! However, to see what I see, you must look past the ICO’s, the scams, and the fear and anger of those involved. Once you see beyond the surface, the truth becomes quite clear, and, only then, can you begin to comprehend how Bitcoin is transforming the world!
Thanks to Bitcoin, we are on the cusp of technological evolution!
Moreover, the new technologies that are coming from Bitcoin development pay homage to their revolutionary beginnings.
For instance:
For me, foreseeing the future of cryptocurrency is like seeing the internet for the first time in full color with images, and, even though I’m no longer thirteen, I still have that same excited feeling! Indeed, the future is bright!
Thank you for reading this post and allowing me to share my story! I encourage you to share your crypto-story with me and others (here or anywhere appropriate).
What does Bitcoin and cryptocurrency mean to you?
Due to technological promise, what future cryptocurrencies/Blockchains/etc are you most excited about?
Although I’ve personally deemed some new cryptocurrencies potential gems, I’ll keep that information to myself right now. After all, the intention of this post is not to promote anything other than cryptocurrency in general.
Please, keep the crypto world in a positive state by allowing everyone their own opinions.
As a growing crypto-community, let’s move into the future together!

Start Here for Much Wallet WOW!

EDIT 2017-02-10: A word about Nodes

There is a discussion about nodes that came up today, where it seems I'm discouraging people from running the full QT/Core client. Yes and No. What I'm trying to make sure people understand is how things work, and that it is NOT mandatory to run a client in order to use Dogecoins (and yes, I realise that browser-based tools like coinb.in and wallet sweepers are 'clients' by strict definition).
That said, more nodes is absolutely a good thing for the network. Preferrably full nodes. How do you run a full node? Just run Core/QT and open up Port 22556 on your router so it can connect to more than 8 peers. What will it cost you? You need your machine to be on 24/7/365, you need enough storage for the full blockchain (currently about 20Gb. Bitcoin is over 120Gb) and enough bandwidth to keep it in sync and share blocks with peers. A couple of Gb a month, most likely. This is best done with a desktop on a wired broadband link. Or maybe a hosted VM in the cloud. :)

EDIT 2017-01-09: Wallets WITHOUT Clients

Since I started helping people on /BitcoinBeginners, I'm getting a lot of questions about how to use wallets without running clients or trusting third parties. So here are a couple of resources that will make that possible, and not just for Dogecoin:
Multi-Coin Wallet Generator Now supporting 129 currencies! Coinb.in Start by setting the currency, found in the gear wheel in the Broadcast tab. Dogecoin Wallet Sweeper Redeem 'paper' wallets containing up to about 100 UTXOs. Bitinfo Charts My favourite block explorer, handles a bunch of cryptos.
Using these resources, it is possible to hold, receive and spend coins in various currencies, without having to run QT or a 'lite' client. You can also download and run the pages on your own device.

EDIT 2016-11-23: SEMANTICS about MINING! :P

Even though there is already a section on mining below, it has been suggested given the huge number of posts on the subject that this needs to be made clearer. Since people get their panties in a twist over the word 'dead', lets change that...

MINING IS DEAD!

MINING DOGECOIN IS UNPROFITABLE!

Put simply, there is no way to mine Dogecoin and make a profit because of the massive hashpower provided by industrial-scale Litecoin miners. Mining Doge directly stopped being viable when our hashrate exploded with the introduction of AuxPoW. Mining with CPU's and GPU's died when ASICs were introduced. And mining with a laptop WILL kill your laptop and cost you a fortune to repair or replace. Mining Litecoin with an exchange that also mines Doge and others will earn less than the electricity consumed, and you won't recover your costs. Probably ever, but certainly not in any reasonable time.
Mining other currencies may be a thing, but that's beyond our scope here. This is /Dogecoin, not /GetRichMiningCryptos after all. If you want to mine the newest scamcoin for fun and profit, look elsewhere for advice. :/
Oh, and most important:

READ BEFORE YOU POST!

At any given time, there are half a dozen posts on the frontpage just like the one you're about to write, where the answers have already been given. Read them. Don't make people waste their time repeating themselves because you were too lazy to bother reading stuff. :P
So there I was, having a quiet Sundy arvo bludge, as you do, when 42points turned up on Facebook and asked me to write a new sticky post for /dogecoin. Why would he do this, when he should be having a bludge himself, I hear you ask? Well, seems he was doing exactly that, and wanted to fob off the work he’s too slack to do himself. ;) Ah well, being a sucker for punishment, I’ll grudgingly oblige I guess.
OK, first things first.

The Clients:

Dogecoin Core 1.10.0 2015-Nov-01
Bootstrap file for Core to save some download time.

EDITS:

From peoplma
I was wondering if you could add just a couple things. A link to the coinomi android wallet, it's probably the best one out there. And a sentence somewhere along the lines of "if you need help with any dogecoin software you are welcome to make a post, but PLEASE include your OS, version number of the client, and any relevant transaction IDs that you are willing to share" if you can fit that in somewhere.
Also, if you want to link to Prohashing, I'm pretty sure it's the only Scrypt mining pool that will actually pay out in doge. The others I know of pay out in litecoin or bitcoin. And it's a profit switching multipool, so gives a better return than just mining ltc/doge.
And there's these two wiki articles I thought would be helpful to link /dogecoin/wiki/technical for those technically minded newbies or intermediate users who want to dig a little deeper. And maybe a link to /dogecoin/wiki/dogecoincoreguide next to the link for dogecoin core.
From pts2002
Finally a proper sticky post! Here's some other stuff you could add:
zpool.ca mining pool - You can get paid in pretty much any coin, and you can mine in multiple algos (currently mining lyra2v2 with my GPU). Doing about 500Ð/day
shapeshift.io exchange - My favourite exchange, quick and easy. No registration required!
Also, you should add some blockchain explorers!
chain.so - Support for bitcoin, litecoin and doge.
dogechain.info - Official blockchain explorer. Includes a wallet (already mentioned). Live update currently not working (?)
EDIT: Here's another thing I found!
preev.com currency value calculator - Easy way to check the value of your dogecoins (or bitcoins, or litecoins, or peercoins)!
